Remember.. education usually trumps work experience when it comes to your initial rank/pay grade (check the reference)
Good Luck to everyone!
I am glad that you listed "usually" and not "does".
Currently my application is before the third review board. The first time it was rejected in one day due to my having applied as a student nurse candidate. I was told that they only accept BSN students as student nurse candidates and not MSN entry students.
Repackaged for regular Army and got a call a week later requesting my cna state registry information from 1989, (It was before my state requested a state test and I am listed as not having taken the test-oh I recently requested to take it and was denied by the state who claimed I was excempt from it due to it being added after my certification).
Anyway, after I sent the cna certificate info I got an unofficial "welcome" from the person who packaged my information, she said that the next time she called me would be to schedule when I wanted to take my oath.
Three weeks later I get a call that the board passed over my application with no reason.
I wanted to repackage it, update it since I've completed another quarter at school and some of my statements where still outdated due to being for the nurse candidate package.
Recruiter and package organizer said, no, just leave it as it is so it can go right before the board.
Well, I am rambling because this is stressful. I do not know why it was passed over since they didn't say.
I made it clear in my statement that even though I will have an MSN upon graduation that I will still be a new clinical nurse in need of preceptorship.
Sigh, so, I am waiting.
Hoping to become a 2LT,
